This activity is made to promote inferencing, recall, and comprehension. Please use it to help you further any skill you are working on! Two stories, a visual support page, and graphic organizer are included.
My suggestions for using this product are as follows…
Make sure you print the story, visual support page, and graphic organizer. Review the visuals first, as these will be the suspects in the story. Talk about the details and how we can describe each object on the page. Have students make notes on their support page (I like to keep these in dry erase pockets to allow students to write on them).
While you are reading the story, make sure you are underlining key pieces of information and discussing why they are important. Have students complete their graphic organizer throughout the reading. Before they make a choice on who is “ghoulty” have students go through their organizer and back up their answers! Please note: there is a completed graphic organizer as an example included in this packet
